GCI and WIT will help you pave the way!

 

Continuing with the Wentworth Institute of Technology partnership, the Gould Construction Institute developed and provides a Certificate Program in Construction Project Management.  In line with the very successful Introduction to Construction Management course, this is just another great milestone in Gould’s ongoing commitment to providing both training and continuing education for anyone who wants to climb the construction ladder, from the apprenticeship level to the very top of the company, continuing on your road to success.


During the Certificate in Construction Project Management program, four courses consisting of 21 hours each and one course consisting of 9 hours will be offered.  Students would be evaluated at the mid-point of each course and at the end to assess learning.  Students who successfully complete each course will receive a “P”.   Students who complete all five courses with a “P” will receive a Certificate in Construction Project Management and can submit this Certificate for up to 8 credits towards an Associate’s in Construction Management at Wentworth.
